Windows 7: Random hangs - (not responding)

Random hangs - (not responding)

Machine hangs up, seemingly at random (different applications.) Gives hourglass (or whatever MS calls that circle thing.) Takes probably a minute or two, and then starts acting normal again.

In an old thread, I saw a suggestion to run event viewer, and found this from around the time of the last hang:

I don't know if it's related. Any help is appreciated. I've received amazing support here in the past.

Ran all that stuff - found nothing that appeared to be of consequence. (Some tracking cookies and the like.) I went ahead and deleted those but I don't suspect they're related. Does the event posted above give a clue? That was logged right around the time of the last hang up.

Not really GoCubs it doesn't show us whether it is a critical or warning or what. It is better opened like in pic. Type Event in search and then click on the Event Viewer open Custom > Admin and there should be the list of events with the appropriate signs against them.
If you can find that one see what is against it.
